Germany-based Edo Competition is more widely known for its exotic supercar transformations but this time, the tuning house set its eyes on one of the most practical high-performance vehicles in the market, the BMW M5 Touring.
Called the M5 Dark Edition, the modified BMW wagon sports a tuned version of the 5.0-liter V10 that has been upgraded with a recalibrated ECU, high-flow air filters and catalytic converters as well as a newly developed high-performance exhaust system.
As a result, output has been lifted from 500HP and 521 Nm (384 lb-ft) to 555-horsepower and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft), with the M5 Dark Edition completing the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint in 4.2 seconds (0.5 seconds faster than the stock model) and the 100km/h -200km/h acceleration in under 10 seconds. By removing the electronic speed nanny, the M5 Touring reaches a top speed of 305km/h (190mph).
The tune continues with a new aero kit comprising of a front apron with additional lights, a rear apron that makes way for bespoke exhaust tips and a roof wing. The high-performance station wagon now rides on new 20-inch alloy wheels painted in black with a sliver rim and shod in Dunlop tires size 255/35 R20 at the front and 285/30 R20 at the rear.
As for the interior upgrades, Edo Competition offers a variety of solutions ranging from leather upholsteries and carbon trim parts to a new speedometer with white dials with a backlit logo.
